“How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride!
How much better is your love than wine,
And the fragrance of your oils
Than all kinds of spices!”
— Song of Songs 4:10
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brothers to dwell together in unity!
It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Coming down upon the beard,
Even Aaron’s beard,
Coming down upon the edge of his robes
— Psa 133:1-2
No longer is the Lord the only one who has a pleasant fragrance; now we also are full of fragrance. Not only the Lord has the Holy Spirit, but we also possess the Holy Spirit.
The ointment upon the head of “Aaron” (representing Christ in Psalm 133) also comes to us, His Body. Since the Lord as the compound Spirit has worked in us, we have a pleasant fragrance. The life flowing from us can supply and satisfy people wherever we go.
